Same lovely glory weather.

Rose unwell ― stomach upset.

Finished Nos. 14 & 15 ― so ― two things are done of this awful job.

But I was ill & restless & depressed ― & X1 whereon ― resolved to go to Péllica tomorrow ― & mentally arranged all so to do ― till I remembered with disgust that I was engaged to the Loughmans’. Bother ― we will dine out no more. Wrote to Stefanizzi ― leaving off Greek lessons for the present. ― I am aweary! O! how weary of all things.

Had the “show room” cleared out ― perhaps to put up these drawings by nails ― for the frames do not seem likely to come & I wish now I had never ordered them but had fixed 5£ for the drawings each. ― However ― never say die. ―

At 5. I went out ― sun not set yet ― & all bright & glorious. Walked by Manducchio & the Parga round ― & down to the Potamo road ― the industrious Maltesi still at work. Then across by the Cross poplar Road, & back by the S. Decca ditto. ―

At Kastrades fell in with Craven ― & walked with him back so far as the Esplanade. ―

Scarlet fever among children here is awful.

Dined ― ἔτζι κ’ ἔτζι. ―

Penned out somewhat. G. went to Kastrades to see that the φαμίλια was well. bed  10.30[.]
